How am I gonna get a DV on a Big Trouble In Little China reference? What kinda crackerjack plan is this Wang?

You would understand had you read today's Skull Session. We are some proud folks!

Since you are currently amused, you should probably click the link and vote for Brutus. Don't be 'fraid

Things I hate:

1. I hate that all of you hate things. Stop hating you haters

2. I dislike OSU alumni that crap on non-alumni because we didn't actually attend the university. Doesn't make any sense whatsoever, so stop it.

3. We do have obnoxious fans, but so does every other school I've come to find. There are just a lot more OSU fans across the country which increases the amount of crazies out there.

4. I also hate lists

5. And irony

I don't know much about them other than it being an NAIA school. I played my HS ball at Findlay and played college ball in the GLIAC so I'm familiar with all of the DII stadiums in MI.

Based on the anticipated crowd size I'd prefer to see this game stay in a smaller, yet full venue. I think it creates a much better atmosphere than playing in an empty stadium (disappointed with state finals being at The Shoe moving forward). But if this game can get covered by ESPN in the future I'd anticipate the crowd size growing dramatically at which point a MAC school stadium would make more sense.

Wayne State isn't a terrible venue but I think there are better options in MI with stadiums of similar size. Wayne St is not in a terrible part of Detroit and I nor anybody else felt uncomfortable being there. I'd say the biggest problem is that the locker rooms are not underneath the main grandstand. The gym locker rooms are used for football games which is a decent walk to the stadium. If it wasn't so far away, Northern Michigan's wooden dome in the UP would be an awesome place for a game. GVSU is a pretty cool place too.

Also an FYI, Donnell is actually Findlay High School's stadium that UF uses, hence the entire facility being covered in blue and gold. UF is currently in the process of building a new stadium on campus.

I don't understand the notion that he was at a disadvantage as a lefty in a camp geared towards rolling right. I believe rolling to the opposite of your arm is actually more advantageous than rolling to your strong side. When you roll to the side of your arm it is very easy to cheat on your mechanics because you can get away with throwing the ball across your body, however two major problems can come from that; one being a lack of velocity on the ball and the second is you lose on accuracy. When you roll the opposite way you have to force your hips and shoulders around toward your target allowing you to throw with more velocity and accuracy. Two different techniques are used to teach this; one is to turn your inside leg and expose the inside of the knee which automatically forces the hips around and the other is simply snapping your shoulders in towards the target. The only time rolling the opposite way becomes difficult is when you have a defender attacking your inside shoulder not allowing you to turn, but in this case he did not face this scenario since these were merely passing drills.

It's almost like receivers saying they have a hard time catching balls from left-handed QBs because the ball spins the opposite direction. No, you just can't catch and you found a bullshit excuse to justify it. (I was a lefty QB if you haven't picked up on the bias yet)
